    solution set is when the (x, y) combination satisfies both conditions

    the original you have greater than in my drawing you have less than shaded less than this is for the second. I do not know what the first one should read. do the first one and mark the solution where it overlaps with the area for second one find the common point in that area

    yes that is the equation for the second one to get the line then for the inequality it says greater than so above the line shaded red

    the first equation y = x -5 the line is green for the inequality less than so below the line

    solution is where they overlap has both green and red the exact point at which they meet is the black spot (1/2, -9/2) the question is asking: which of the given coordinates is in the combined red and green section?

    the black dot is where the lines meet x = 1/2 there

    correct so use x = 5 in each equation and find the y value
